Krav Maga Timeline


Imi Sdr-Or (Lichtenfeld), Founder of Krav Maga, started teaching hand-to-hand combat in the Haganah (pre-state defense militia).


Following the independence of the State of Israel - Imi continued teaching in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) as Chief Instructor for physical fitness and hand-to-hand combat, where he developed what later became known as Krav Maga.


Ten years after Imi retired from the IDF and took Krav Maga to the civilian sector, Eyal Yanilov began studying Krav Maga under Imi's personal tutelage.


Appointed by Imi as Head of the Professional Committee, Eyal formed the new curriculum of Krav Maga and introduced it to the other high graded Israeli instructors.


Imi awarded Eyal Master Level 3 - the highest grade in the system - and granted him the Founders Diploma of Exellence (1997). Imi then entrusted Eyal with the mission of turning Krav Maga into an integrated, comprehensive, technical and tactical system.

2010 - now

Eyal and his team established KMG - Krav Maga Global, a global infrastructure designed to expand Krav Maga throughout the world, while maintaining the highest level of professionalism, morals and ethics.
